Venton Berron is a fine example of an immaculately refurbished and meticulously maintained country cottage, currently used by the current owners as a small Bed & Breakfast, just a few miles from Truro. The cottage sits in an elevated location overlooking over 6 acres of owned land that fall away from the cottage to the woods at the bottom of the valley, bordered by three large man-made interconnecting ponds, one with an island and a seating pontoon, as a natural habitat for the abundance of wildlife to be found at Venton Berron. Be welcomed home by the pheasants stalking the lawns of the formal gardens and enjoy the outstanding and far-reaching views over rolling countryside and farmland with no other properties in sight. Venton Berron is an increasingly rare opportunity to buy a detached property that offers such peace and tranquillity, yet just a few miles from civilisation.
Formal colourful and fully planted landscaped mature gardens surround the property featuring a shaped front lawn, adjoining the drive and parking. To the rear of the property, the current owners have created a versatile external dining/entertaining area with a charming covered BBQ “cave” and garden kitchen set into the landscape adjoining the upper lawn and ideal for a spot of clay-pigeon shooting over the valley. There are a variety of log stores, workshops and outbuildings on the land, suitable for housing garden machinery, storing logs for the winter months, or for potential conversion into stables and tack room. The 6 or so acres of land slope away from Venton Berron and are completely surrounded by post and electric wired fencing with independent access off the road. The property is served by a private well water supply, also providing an abundant water supply for the land.
The cottage itself has been extended in previous years, very much in keeping with its cottage heritage and now offers versatile family accommodation comprising 4 bedrooms, including a master bedroom with en-suite facilities and a Juliet balcony offering stunning views. The main living area is largely split level, open plan with steps down into the sitting room with a feature log burner and access onto the sunny front paved terrace. The property is double glazed throughout with uPVC woodgrain windows and is heated by an LPG radiated central heating system.
